If you are looking for the perfect venue for your beach wedding… if you are looking for a great menu selection and food quality… if you are looking for a one stop shop… Salero is the place. My husband and I got married on Saturday night at Salero. From the moment we met Dawn, we knew we were in capable professional hands. She did everything she said she would do and did it TOP NOTCH. The staff was attentive and friendly. Mike the DJ was awesome. He totally listened to our requests for music selections and showed great flexibility. Everyone was up on the dance floor all night long because his mix of music was perfect. Dawn also set up our chairs on the beach. Our wedding was perfect!

To Dawn and Chef David, thank you so very much for putting on the best night of the year for our Hall of Fame Banquet. The food, service and ambiance was better than what we dreamed it could be. Everyone in attendance thanked the hall of fame committee for weeks after the event. We look forward to having all future events at your beautiful location. May God continue to bless you and your family.

We just want to say thank you to Dawn, her husband Chef David, and staff for giving our family and friends a “first class” experience. Our wedding was on April 6, 2013 and it was a beautiful day! It has been days later and our guest are still talking about how great the food was and how much fun they had… Special thanks to DJ Mike; he was very personable and met every request to keep my family dancing all night long. From the moment I met Dawn I knew I was in good hands… I stressed over a lot during my planning for our wedding, but I never worried when it came to Salero… She exceeded my expectations and I am truly grateful. The view at Salero will make you forget where you are... we were both raised in Delaware and we just felt like we were seeing for the first time why people from all over come here! So, God Bless and we plan to come back to celebrate our anniversary. Sincere Thanks!

To Dawn, Chef David, DJ Mike, and Bartender (Sorry I forgot your name we were too drunk): we just wanted to thank you for an AMAZING wedding! We got sooo my compliments from our family and friends. The food was amazing and as the bride I made sure I ate! The music was on point - kept everyone dancing and having fun. And Dawn you were amazing at making sure the whole event from the ceremony to the reception went perfectly. As newlyweds, we will always look back on our special day remembering how amazing our union was and we hope to have more events at your venue! Thank you.

We had the good fortune of booking Salero for our 25th wedding anniversary/vow renewal, well over a year before our event which was on Sunday June 23 2013. Rehoboth Beach is such a huge part of our family life together, that we knew we wanted this celebration to be here in our beloved Rehoboth. Yes, there were other options, but we found all to be either too generic, too impersonal, too banquet-hall-ish and all with a staff that just seemed to be going through the motions. Dawn is amazing - receptive, professional, patient and kind. Chef David, well, he could easily win Top Chef, and DJ Mike is a classy in-tune talented professional. Our guests are still raving over the beautiful venue, the food, the service, the view, the music and elegance. Our first wedding 25 years ago was lovely, so this was NOT a do-over, but rather a We STILL Do! We couldn’t have chosen a more perfect place than Salero to honor this momentous occasion. We are eternally grateful to Dawn, Chef David and DJ Mike and all the Staff at Salero, for bringing our special event expectations not only to fruition, but beyond we might have hoped. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Our daughter’s wedding was held on the beach in front of the Henlopen Hotel on 10/4/14 and the reception was held at the Salero afterwards. To say that everything was perfect would be an understatement. I cannot say enough good things about Dawn Horton, the Chef and the DJ. Dawn was most attentive before and during the reception to make sure everything was perfect (which it was). The food was excellent, the DJ excellent, the ambience excellent. I have never experienced such personal care from a vendor and highly recommend Dawn Horton, Chef David and the Salero for your special event!

Our Son and his wife were married on 5/30/15 on the beach in front of the Henlopen Hotel and the reception followed at the Salero. I would like to express our sincere thanks to Dawn and her staff for the outstanding service and attention to detail. Excellence does not describe the caring, preparation and serving of the food selections at the reception. Everything was perfect, served hot and very good. Our guests were extremely impressed. Dawn and her staff could not have been more attentative to our guests. We were blessed to have found such a great location with such a host who put out the very best they could offer for this special event at a reasonable cost. We could not have found a better person to make the wedding any more special as it was supposed to be. Dawn and her staff exceeded our expections by miles. We would like to extend our sincere thanks again for a job well done.

My husband and I were married on May 30 2015 on the beachfront of Salero and then the reception at Salero. From the day we booked the venue until the event Dawn and her staff were nothing but helpful. All my questions were answered almost immediately because Dawn was available at a moments notice, which is amazing! Every detail was calculated and executed with precision and professionalism the whole way through. The ceremony on the beach was gorgeous and the reception exceeded ALL of my expectations. From the format of the whole night, to the exquisite food and the easy-going fun DJ, it was everything I dreamed of and more. I will recommend Salero, Dawn and her staff from now on without hesitation.

I’ve left my review of Salero on WeddingWire, but can’t risk someone not seeing it because they’re only checking out the website! So sharing here as well! Happy event/wedding planning! The hours leading up to the wedding my photographers got delayed by traffic, bridal party got soaked while out getting pictures, there was a torrential downpour leading up to our outdoor beachfront ceremony delaying the start, & then… a rainbow & the most perfect day ever. Thru all of it, never one issue, concern or doubt about our decision to go with Dawn & her team. Dawn made sure our wedding was exactly what we wanted, even if that meant a team down on the beach drying off each chair. I’ve looked through all of the reviews seeing if I could touch on something anyone had missed, but really everyone has it down. Dawn has done this ‘once or twice’ before! We selected Salero (& made 2/3 of our payments) without setting foot in the venue or meeting Dawn in-person. That’s how confident we were in our decision based off of reviews just like the one I hope I’m offering up in Salero’s praise, & a few conversations with Dawn. I said throughout my entire planning process that people surely hated how easy the entire process was for us; I largely have Dawn to thank for that. I didn’t work with a designated wedding coordinator, but had no need to with the way Dawn has things set up. To have the ceremony setup, the sound system, the catering, the bar, the DJ, all through one highly skilled & passionate person is a godsend. And with the team behind Dawn as top-notch as she is, I can’t imagine having done anything differently. Dawn & her team repeatedly made that my husband & I were carefree & having fun. At one point in the evening Dawn checked on how I was doing, I started with saying how everyone was having a blast & she was quick to say, she just cared about how much fun I was having… & she is genuinely being sincere, she made it her mission to ensure we had the best wedding ever. Our wedding guests were echoing the thoughts in our head as all night they raved to us about the staff, the view, the food, the music, you name it. You truly can’t go wrong choosing Salero!

My daughter just had her wedding on the beach and her reception at Salero on Friday, September 23, 2016. We couldn’t have been happier with Salero and the wedding planning team. Dawn is absolutely amazing at her job, and our wedding and reception was perfect. All of our planning meetings went smoothly, and she accommodated all of our special needs. On the day of the wedding Dawn handled each step with professionalism and personal care. The food was delicious, beginning with the tasty appetizers, the main course of filet and crabcake, and the chocolate fountain. We only heard positive comments from our guests about the meal and the service. The DJ was great and also accommodated our desire for specific songs. We danced the night away! Thank you so much to Dawn and the entire staff of Salero for giving us the wedding of a lifetime. I was especially impressed with how Dawn checked on us the entire night to see if we were having fun and to see if we had everything we needed. I would recommend Salero and Dawn to anyone who wants a beautiful beach wedding.

I had my reception on 4/6/18 at Salero after a beach ceremony in front of the hotel. The food is phenomenal (even better than my tasting), accommodations were impeccable and the view is breathtaking. Dawn and her staff made sure my day went so smoothly without any hiccups. My husband and I were truly taken care of from start to finish. Dawn was so helpful and responsive starting from my first tour at Salero. It truly was the best day of my life and I would recommend this venue to anyone looking to have an unforgettable event.

People are still raving about the food at my wedding! The setting at Salero, a tasteful light yellow room, eight floors above the Rehoboth boardwalk, overlooking the ocean, was the perfect setting for the reception following my gorgeous beach wedding. My wedding was pretty laid back (no suits, ties, tuxes or gowns – just flip flops, cotton dresses on the girls and linen pants and shirts for the guys) so the restaurant-like feel/setup of Salero was perfect. The staff were great, especially Dawn (owner/event coordinator) who kept the energy high, made sure my husband, family, attendants and I were taken care of all night, and kept things flowing very smoothly. She even handled, um, ‘sticky’ family situations like a pro. I had a BLAST at my wedding and I would recommend Salero to anyone, every time.
- Satisfied Customer
The perfect combination of fun and professional. Dawn (owner) was hands on throughout the entire night, and my wedding reception was perfect from start to finish. The food was FANTASTIC, and 3 weeks later I am still hearing compliments about the food, service, location, and Dawn herself. The view as well as the decor took my breath away from the first moment I saw Salero. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Salero, and am completely unable to find anything negative to say! Finding Salero was a huge blessing, and I can’t imagine having had my wedding anywhere else. At the end of the night, I wished I could do it all over again the next day. Salero comes with my husband’s, my family’s, my friends’, and my absolute highest recommendations.
- Satisfied Customer
Everything about our wedding reception at Salero was amazing and perfect. Dawn was amazing to work with and we couldn’t have asked for anything more! I highly recommend the seafood pasta as an entree… best ever!
- Jessica Messersmith-Miller
Thank you so much to Dawn and her staff for making our wedding the most spectacular day ever. Josh and I and all of our guests had the most amazing time. It truly was the perfect day! Seriously – if anyone gets married in Rehoboth and DOESN’T have their wedding reception at Salero – they are missing out! We had the most fantastic night of our lives. Thank you again to everyone at Salero (especially Dawn!) & DJ Mike from the bottom of our hearts. My legs hurt from dancing so much (or whatever you call it that I was doing) but it was well worth it! The food was amazing, the service… the, well, EVERYTHING!
- Rochelle Bauder
I must say that this venue was fantastic. Dawn and David made my special day amazing and I couldn’t have done it without them. In comparison to other vendors in this area it was very reasonably priced as well. All Dawn and David did was bend over backwards to make sure I had an amazing day.
- Satisfied Customer
I can not thank Dawn and her staff enough for such an amazing night! Our guests had an amazing time – the view of the beach, service, and food was absolutely amazing!
- Satisfied Customer
All that I can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart. Now I know why all of the testimonies are the way they are. I will write more when we are back from our honeymoon but I HAD to say that you really are amazing. You made our day sooooo perfect!!! I wouldn’t change a thing and it was all because of you!
- Wendy and Sam
My daughter Lisa had her wedding reception at Salero in June 2009. I now have a friend helping her daughter plan a wedding. I told her that Salero was the perfect reception choice. Dawn and staff gave incredible service, the food was outstanding and the atomsphere was amazing. Lisa and Danny had the perfect wedding.
- Donna
We had our reception at the Salero April 16, 2011, all I can say is FABULOUS! The venue itself is beautiful and despite the tornado like weather that night the atmosphere was amazing. Everyone raved about the food and everyone had so much fun! Mike did a fantastic job keeping everyone moving. Dawn… what can I say; you went above and beyond, you catered to our every need. I couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I thought I would take a minute on our 2 month anniversary to write a review for all you future brides out there. I am so lucky that I happened to stumble on Salero by doing a Google search. Right from the start, Dawn was available to answer any of my questions. She always got back to me in a timely fashion; communication was never an issue. The night before the wedding when my husband, Dawn, and I sat down was totally stress free. This feeling carried into the next night at our reception. Mike the DJ was fabulous! He played our song list, plus a few of his favorites. The dance floor was never empty. Two months later, friends and family are still talking about the wedding. Many co-workers still say that we had the best party of the year. Anything I asked Dawn during my day was taken care of. There was nothing for my husband and I to do but enjoy the start of our wonderful life together. Thank you Dawn and the Salero for giving us the best wedding we could ask for! Here’s to a 25th wedding celebration!
- Teresa Paulsen
My husband and I were married on Friday, May 4, 2012. It was the most magical day. The Salero venue, Dawn and her husband David (the Chef) did a terrific job. Besides the fact that the room speaks for itself with its three sided window walls on the ocean; the food, Mike the DJ, Dawn’s professionalism and attention to detail was top drawer. If you are looking for a reception venue that will make a statement and put a smile on your face along with your guests, choose Salero. You will not be disappointed. Thanks again Dawn.
- Patricia and Kevin McCarthy
We recently had our wedding reception at the Salero and it was Amazing! The view, the food, the music, I could go on and on. Most importantly, Dawn. She was a pleasure to work with and was on top of everything. All we heard were great comments about the entire reception, venue, food and music. I want to have another reception just so I can come back to Salero. I would recommend this venue, Dawn, and DJ Mike to other brides in a heartbeat! Thank you Dawn for helping make my wedding so memorable.

We had three great nights at the Henlopen hotel. No complaints. All was perfect!
- Betty
Salero was an amazing place to have our wedding reception. The view of the ocean, of course, is the best. The restaurant itself, also beautiful. But even more than that the food is delicious! All of our guests kept saying how much they loved the food and how good it was. We loved it too! Also, Dawn the owner, is wonderful. She makes everything so easy and nothing was a problem for her. Dawn always responded to all of our questions very quickly. She is so friendly and easy to work with. In fact she takes away all of your worries because she takes care of everything! She made everything at the reception run so smoothly. She went above and beyond our expectations. We highly recommend Salero to anyone for any event. You will not be disappointed!

Thanks to Salero I had the beach wedding of my dreams! It far exceeded my expectations and everything turned out perfect. I also have to say that the packages made life easy and I always got quick responses regarding any changes or questions I had. I would highly recommend Salero for the perfect wedding!
- Satisfied Customer
Dawn, Again I can’t thank you enough for the AMAZING wedding reception that you made possible for us. Jason and I didn’t have to worry about a single thing – you thought of every single last detail-and it allowed us to truly enjoy our special day. PS – you were right, DJ Mike was off the chain!
- Jessica Sunseri
Thank You Dawn for all your help with my son’s wedding, everything was just perfect, the food was excellent and everyone enjoyed themselves! Thank you again!
